Something tells us Pippa Middleton may end up spoiling her nephew a little bit.

In the wake of Prince George's arrival into the world, Kate Middleton's younger sibling has expressed her joy over the newest family member.

A source tells People that Pippa has said she is "very excited about my sister's baby" and "so happy to be an aunt, as I love kids."

Pippa and boyfriend Nico Jackson reportedly met the bundle of joy at Kensington Palace after he and his parents left the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London on Tuesday.

Of course, Pippa isn't the first Middleton family member to meet the royal baby. Earlier that day, Kate and Pippa's parents Carole and Michael Middleton stopped by the hospital to see the Duchess of Cambridge and new grandson.

"They're both doing well," Carole said. "We're so thrilled."

And while Pippa wil undoubtedly get high marks for being an aunt, she's already been receiving quite a bit of praise for her work as a food columnist for Waitrose Kitchen magazine.

"She is a good cook and writer and works very hard," William Sitwell, editorial director of John Brown Media, which publishes the mag, told The New York Times.

Sitwell added that Pippa comes into the office once every month or two and helps them "bash out a few issues" and that "she has impressed the whole team here."
